In the spirit of DIY and also partly because of general crappy student finances, I decided to make my friend Sarah's 18th birthday gift, as I've done with so many friends this past year. Since she's such a foody I made a pencilcase in the shape of a slice of cake, taking inspiration (sort of) from Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette (which I may in fact use as part of my French detailed study on Marie Antoinette =P). The material was all from Lincraft, my favourite bit is the ric rac trimming. I've been looking for an excuse to buy some for ages so I was really excited! The lining is actually a light blue apple print cotton that I bought whilst in Vietnam which I made stiffer with interfacing. So far this has probably been my most difficult craftygift to date, apart from my other friend Joey's Pacman shaped pencilcase with the zipper mouth, because I actually had to think about 3-dimensions this time lol.  Cheesy
